How to Stretch Your Wedding Budget Further

In recent times, we’re all looking at ways to pull our purse strings a little tighter with inflation and rising living costs hitting everyone hard. So it’s becoming more common for couples to look for ways to be smarter with their wedding budget. A wedding is one of the most expensive parties you’ll throw in your lifetime, but it doesn’t have to strain your future life with your love. There are ways for a budget conscious couple to stretch their wedding budget even further and still get the wedding day of their dreams.

OPT FOR A MID WEEK WEDDING

Opting for a Monday to Thursday wedding instead of a traditional weekend can mean you save hundreds! Demand for Friday, Saturday, Sunday weddings, leaves the weekdays more available and more affordable. Enquire about our mid week wedding packages.

BOOK WITHIN 5 MONTHS OF YOUR WEDDING DATE

A short term wedding booking is a great way to save money. If you’re not too indecisive when it comes to wedding planning + choosing suppliers, this could be the perfect way to save you (literally) thousands of dollars! Venues and supplier alike know that short term wedding planning is not for everyone, so if they’re keen to fill a near date, you will most likely be able to take advantage of a few discounts. Read all about our short term wedding package here.

CONSIDER OFF PEAK MONTHS

If you’re not fussy about the date, booking your wedding during off peak months (Summer + Winter) is a great way to save. If you live locally you’ll know Winter on the Tweed is not really Winter, with average daytime temperatures in June – August hovering around 21 degrees!​​​​​​​​ And even better news, last year, July was the second lowest month for rainfall​​​ in our area, so it really is a perfect time for your wedding. Enquire about our available Winter and Summer dates here.
